I hope, at the end of the day, you’re you.
I hope that the fire in your soul fuels your bravery and the criticism of society burns in the flames.
I hope you love so freely that it scares people away and attracts the deepest friendships of your life.
I hope you spike your hot cocoa to stay warm and breathe in the crisp winter air because the contrast is sacred.
I hope you fall in love so bad it hurts and he only stays if he let’s you be exactly who you are.
I hope you always stay exactly who you are.
Never a dimmed light-
never a watered down version-
always, 100% you.
I hope you eat french fries and skip the salad once in a while.
I hope you call yourself beautiful.
I hope you look in the mirror and accept yourself for your own beauty ideal.
I hope you talk to yourself like you would talk to your best friend.
I hope you practice kindness and stay genuine.
I hope you aren’t afraid to feel sadness and learn how to carry it with you.
I hope that you inspire yourself to be brave and believe in yourself to be fearless.
I hope you know that you can do anything.
Whatever you want, just do it.
I hope that you care for others in a way that makes them love you to the ends of the earth and fight like hell for what you believe in.
I hope your beliefs are never shoved down the throats of others.
I hope you listen to the silence for all that it says.
I hope you listen just to listen and not to respond.
I hope that you are missed by the ones you love and miss those you adore.
I hope you remember to smile.
I hope you aren’t too hard on yourself.
I hope that someone finds that light of yours and let’s it shine as bright as ever before.
I hope no one tries to take away your spirit.
I hope you never let them.
I hope you never apologize for what isn’t in your control.
I hope that you share yourself if only so you feel more confident in who you are.
I hope you never change.
I will always hope, at the end of the day, that you are you.
Anna Marie ❤
